Our Black-and-white striped day dress is so Retro! It features, crisscross banding above a notched-out midriff with an Exposed gold zipper in the back. Best described as a playful “Lolita” dress, or modern fashion trend term-Skaters Dress. The dress has “pinking” scissored motif, meaning it is crafted using pinking shears. Pinking Shears are Scissors, the blades of which are saw toothed instead of straight. They leave a zigzag pattern instead of a straight edge.
Retro is a particular style that is, consciously derivative or imitative of trends, music, modes, fashions, or attitudes of the recent past, typically 15–20 years old. The term retro has been in use since the 1970’s to describe on the one hand new artifacts that self-consciously refer to particular modes, motifs, techniques, and materials of the past. Wear it on the back of a Vespa down the street of Rome with a gelato in one hand will definitely give attention to the “little girl” inside all of us.
